Thanks for the very quick response!

That corrected the problem.  I didn't expect MS Word and PDF files to fall into the "binary" category.  (That's what I get for thinking <sigh>).

Baseline: XPLORER2 Pro 1.5.0.1 on Win XP Pro. Es...

Limited Folder Depth in TreeView???

My apologies if this has been discussed previously, but I'm puzzled by behavior I'm seeing while traversing the tree pane. In Tree pane, I see this folder with no (+) beside it indicating there are no subfolders present (partially sanitized names): C:\Documents and Settings\j--------\My Documents\zz...
